Artist Veri Apriyatno creates beautiful and intrictate hypperrealistic self-portraits by mimicking the style of acclaimed artist M.C Escher.

Escher, who was well-known for his drawings that symbolized infinite and impossible reality, can be seen throughout these paintings, as the extremely impressive three-dimensional drawings show men, likely himself, drawing one another. In these monochromatic pieces of art, there is no telling where the drawing ends and the real art begins. Just as we as humans like to recreate ourselves in a more metaphorical sense, the artist takes this in a literal sense and displays this in his drawings. The use of pencil allows artist Veri Apriyatno to playing with shadow and texture techniques to allow him to give it the depth and authentic quality present in his images.
